The Next Generation of Friendship

Once upon a time, there were two little boys. They liked cars and bikes and things that moved fast. They were friends.

They graduated from high school. One of the little boys bought the other little boy's car - a 1981 camaro. They both still LOVE that car! They went to college and ended up in very different careers and living very far away from one another. But they never lost touch - that was important, they stayed friends.

They met two Mrs. Rights :) and began families. Mrs. Rights adored one another and always agree not distance, nor time, nor vocation, nor life will ever get in the way of them spending time together.

They each had two little girls and those little girls grew to love one another.

To be continued...

Our little loves

Steve and Rob have been friends since they were nine. I think Steve said that fifty times this weekend:) We were blessed to spend a long weekend with these very special friends. We miss them terribly and absolutely love the time we get to spend together. We did not even venture out much because it was too enticing to chat and catch up. Our cameras remained relatively silent (sorry!)but our days were filled with fun and togetherness.

They dusted off the old yearbook and relived some fond memories and some not-so fond ones. They laughed and hugged, we laughed and hugged, our girls hung on each others' every move and slept side by side. We ate like kings and laughed til our sides hurt. Parenting, ahh parenting, we discussed the good the bad and the ugly and agreed we could not be happier. Time may go between us, miles stand before us, our lives are different, but our own, and we appreciate that in each other. We plan to take a trip together in the next couple years and in the meantime, Emily has already packed a bag to wait until we return or they come our way for a visit, which will hopefully happen this fall.

We celebrated Steve's fortieth birthday and Rob's and my anniversary (see previous post) Thanks guys for a fabulous time - we love you!

How cool to for Rob (and now you) to have such a wonderful lifelong friend and for it to carry over to your girls. You just have to love guy friendships. They really are so uncomplicated and low maintenance, but deep in their own right.

Glad it was such a fun-filled weekend.

Love you,
